Grub Problem


Hello, I am havign a problem now with GRUB. Nothing serious just that I cannot seem to boot into a second XP disk that I have.

My setup is as follows:

title Red Hat Linux (2.4.20-8)
root (hd0,1)
kernel /vmlinuz-2.4.20-8 ro root=LABEL=/ hdd=ide-scsi
initrd /initrd-2.4.20-8.img
title Windows XP Pro on HD0
rootnoverify (hd0,0)
chainloader +1
title Old system in Safe Mode
rootnoverify (hd1,0)
chainloader +1

I can boot into both the Linux and XP Pro partitions no problem, but the Old system on the other disk appears to plop straight into the XP Pro startup? Why should this be?

The second disk is from the hardware browser in RedHat9 hdb1 NTFS and is the only partition on that drive. I have tried:

root (hd1,0)

in grub and this would appear to be the only partition with the reply... "Filesystem type unknown, partition type 0x7" which is the same as I get for (hd0,0)

Any other ideas? Do I need to hide partitions?

Thank you for any reply.
Yad.

Try adding some of these lines:

title Old system in Safe Mode on hd1
map (hd0) (hd1)
map (hd1) (hd0)
rootnoverify (hd1,0)
chainloader +1


Hope that'll help :-)
